Engineering and Science

For engineering or science students who want to become an expert in nuclear power, this is a great way to start. 16 months of intensive training will give you a solid grounding in various aspects of the operation of nuclear power plants. You’ll spend time working in a power station, learn from some of the world’s leading nuclear power specialists, and begin your journey towards chartered status. And after 16 months training, you should be ready to take on a permanent role. So which is the right starting point for you?



Our commercial schemes introduce bright business minds to exciting opportunities on a series of six-month (or yearly for finance graduates) rotations – giving you the overview and insights to launch a richly rewarding career at the heart of our energy future. Each programme offers fulfilling work, rapid progress and extensive training, as well as the chance to work towards relevant professional qualifications in certain areas. Which one will you opt for?
